Confessions of a stay at home mom Friday

There is only going to be one confession today....
Often times I over do things. I guess if I'm going to confess, if I'm doing something I tend to over do it, it's not often times, it's usually all the time. Lately my life has been pretty calm, besides the whole potty training thing.
So it's been awhile since I've over done something, but maybe my hubby will say other wise. I guess with my hands, I over do things. A side note, my hands for a long time had gotten pretty dry and were almost raw. I finally went to see S's dermatologist and found out what I knew, that I had eczema. Well anyway, he told me I need to stop doing as much stuff with my hands, especially when it comes to water, since they are like powdered sugar and when ever they get wet the skin desolves. So it's been nice to have the hubby on dish duty!! I'm not going to complain about that. I was really good the first week, and now that my hands are clearing up I'm not so good. There are days that are busy and the dishes don't get done by a certain someone, and both sinks are full, so I have to do some to make room for the stuff I'm going to dirty during the day. Anyway enough on the side note.
Back to the subject at hand. The hubby and I started a recipe club a few months back, and the first month, I made two dishes, because we couldn't agree on one, so I over did it. It didn't need to be done, but I did it anyway. Why, people please I guess. (We didn't have it last month, so I didn't have to over do it. The family said they would do it, never did. Shame on you!!!) This weekend, is another one of those times for me to over do it. Tomorrow is a b-day party for the hubby's grandma. They are having a potluck and I decided to make something to bring. Why? Most likely any of the grandkids, who are all for the most part married, thatcome won't bring anything. I like to be helpful, or at least feel I should be. If it's a potluck and I'm going and I'm going to eat, I need to bring something, common sense, right? Well at least for me. Then Sunday we are having a b-day party/superbowl party for the hubby. He said he didn't want cake, since he doesn't like it much and wanted rice crispy treats instead, one of his favorite things. So I made two batches, and two different kinds, even though I'm sure there aren't going to be enough people that come to eat them all. Then Monday we are having another b-day get together for the hubby (can you say spoiled rotten?) with 2 other families that we get together often with. This one what did I decide to do? Well let me tell you. I'm making dinner for everyone. I'm making a Japanese dish, and then mac and cheese, for the kids since most likely they won't eat it, although S does. The hubby really likes pies and since less people are coming to this one then Sunday I think, I decided to make 3 pies. The hubby likes lemon, so I decided to make a lemon pie and then two others sine most likely the kiddies won't like lemon. I also have had two people call me this week to teach a kids class in church on Sunday. I said I couldn't, but didn't flat out say no, but came up with some excuses. I should have told them the truth though, but at the time the truth hadn't occured to me. I have a crazy next 3 days, and the last thing I have time for or want to do is prepare a lesson and be in charge of who knows how many kids by myself. So anyway, I have my hands full. And hopefully the hubby will pay me back come my b-day time. So I'm done over doing it after this Monday, and will be until the next day, and who knows what will happen.

No comments hu? Well I will. Lets just say that sunday party was fun. Not as many people showed up as we expected, but the rice crispies where a hit. Everyone liked them.

And Erin, take care of your hands--you don't get another pair until the next life.

I enjoyed your party sunday. The company was good, the game was fun, and the rice krispies were so good life as the greater peon didn't seem so bad. I become less wary of you all the time House Warden.

Become less wary of me all the time. What is that suppose to mean? I know that I'm to be the meanie around here, but wow. I guess I'll have to talk to the hubby about that and see if I took it as it was intended.

Kilted Wolf said...

I don't think you took it at intended.
